Date Night Cliche

I've always thought that associating girly dresses and date nights is such a cliche.. well, why not once in a blue moon embrace the cliche and make my man happy, right?  I've had this dress for a long while and believe it or not, it was still with its price tag when I took it out an hour or so before these pictures! That is how much I look for dresses in my life!

So, why did I buy this dress if I hardly wear dresses?  I guess I was attracted by the color blocking and the flattering waistline. Besides, it falls nicely and the hemline hits perfectly on the knees.  It is not possible in the most unnatural way for me to go out without adding the masculine flair I love so much to my outfit hence the leather jacket.  Sad to think that this might be the last few days I have to wear leather as summer is definitely creeping in.. 










I am linking up with some fabulous ladies in Visible Monday Link Up at NOT DEAD YET STYLE, and Monday Bloom Link Up at DC IN STYLE, so do check it out!

  14. Gorgeous! Gorgeous! Love the color blocking style. I thought at first its a separate. what i love about your style is how you add a somewhat fierce piece to accentuate the look but you come out with a dominantly feminine look. love the studded shoes!

  28. Love the that shade of blue with the black. I've definitely been guilty of having price tags on dresses that I bought months before. I'm just not good at wearing dresses as casual pieces, and it's not everyday you do something formal! Love the look.

  29. Yep. Your instincts are right on the money with your jacket and this simple little dress. Instant elevation. Very nice twist on girly-date night dressing.
    I see so many really gorgeous light jackets right now, but here it won't be long until triple digit heat and high humidity makes them a waste of money. I keep a couple for cold theatres and restaurants, but otherwise never get to play. I know what you mean.
